"The least expensive offering, the dense ruby/plum/purple-colored 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Olivets (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Cinsault aged in wood foudres or smaller old oak barrels) is a classic example of Provence. Lush, dense, raspberry, fig, plum and cherry notes intermixed with lavender and underbrush emerge from this full-bodied, ripe, juicy, succulent, seductive wine. It should drink well for at least a decade. "

"Pure, fresh and sleek, with a lovely warm linzer sauce aroma backed by creamy cherry preserves, plum and black currant fruit. Subtle spice shadings hang on the silky finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,500 cases made. -JM"

"Very approachable and ready to go, the 2009 Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Olivets is loaded with red currant and crushed berry fruit-like qualities as well as copious spice, garrigue, olive, and flowers on the nose. Medium-bodied and friendly on the palate, with good richness and an upfront, lush profile, this is straight-up delicious now, but should shine for up to a decade."
